  • When whippoorwill call, and evening is night
    I'll hurry to my blue heaven
    You turn to the right, you find a little bright light
    That leads you to my blue heaven

    You find a cozy place, fireplace, cozy room
    A little nest that nests where the roses bloom
    Just Molly and me, and the baby makes three
    We're happy in my blue heaven

    When whippoorwill call, and evening is night
    I'll hurry to my blue heaven
    You turn to the right, you find a little bright light
    That leads you to my blue heaven

    You find a cozy place, fireplace, cozy room
    A little nest that nests where the roses bloom
    Just Molly and me, and the baby makes three
    We're happy in my blue heaven Writer/s: George Whiting, Walter Donaldson

  • Barry from Sauquoit, NyOn September 26th 1961, the western movie 'A Thunder of Drums' had its world premiere in New York City...
    The movie starred Richard Boone, George Hamilton, and playing the supporting role of 'Trooper Eddy', was Duane Eddy...
    At the time Duane's covered version of "My Blue Heaven" was at #69 on Billboard's Hot Top 100 chart, and that was also its 5th and last week on the chart...
    The week before it had peaked at #50 {for 1 week} on the Top 100...
    And six days after the movie's premiere, on October 2nd, Duane Eddy performed "My Blue Heaven" on the ABC-TV program 'American Bandstand'.

  • David from Mesa, AzActually, the Smashing Pumpkins' "extra" lyrics have always been part of the song--most Tin Pan Alley songs have intro parts which are sometimes omitted in common usage such as the 'purple dusk' intro from "Stardust" or the 'Oh ma honey' from "Alexander's Ragtime Band". In this instance, the lyrics are "Day is ending/Birds are wending/Back to the shelter of/Each little nest they love/Nightshades falling/Lovebirds calling/What makes the world go round?/Nothing but love"
  • Brett from Edmonton, CanadaI heard the ending of the Pumpkins' lyrics as "Nothing but love", for what it's worth.
  • Greg from Calgary, United StatesThe Smashing Pumpkins added these lyrics before the traditional ones:

    Day is ending
    Words are wending
    Back to the show
    Each little
    Nestling love
    Night sheds falling
    Love words calling
    What makes the world
    Go round?
    Nothing, my love...
